Sniper Gauntlet Usage by ViperXtreme Sniper Gauntlet Usage by ViperXtreme
Well, some folks wanted to know the weapon operation from this previous dev:
[link]
So i made a very quick sketch (not really in teh mood so i did it quick with not much details)

WARNING: long babble ahead, mostly just a story element for my supposed to be comic :|

Before anything else, only a select few can use the weapon. Special ones with that "X" particle in their blood (i named it X for now since i dunno what to call it yet). The weapon draws its ammo in the X matter that circulates in the user's blood stream.
Normally this X matter can only be activated or aroused when the host is excited as the heart beats faster the X matter becomes more potent and releases that energy and even becomes more potent when mixed with the adrenalin.

Users with such excited matter in their blood normally becomes a little pale and has some bluish glow in their skin where the blood vessels are mostly visible, creating an unusual glow in their body, specially the eyes where a good amount of blood vessel resides and as an exposed (sense) organ, the glow is a little more visible(along with the eye glow, it also increases the eye's "refresh rate". This makes the user see a very fast moving object with ease and makes them more aware, it may affect the other sense organs as well) . This outburst in energy can be exploited in many different ways depending on the user's will or their DNA or anything else, they just need to find that out. Energy can be released in any part of the body depending on the user.

For example, the girl here with the weapon can manipulate the energy to release some devastating energy streams/waves or plasma ball-like explosive weapons, so basically she is the missile/projectile type, and ideal to use such weapon as it requires precision control of the X matter.

As for the weapon firing method, the Gauntlet is charged for a short time as it's constantly binded to her arm. The gloves and small devices in her hand helps her stabilize the X matter that is flowing to the weapon.

Note:
"Traditional" design of a sniper rifle may be considered but the required conductor for it to charge the weapon is a little bit hard/complicated and expensive to build that's why a clamp based weapon is used to be in direct contact with the skin (imagine a regular rifle where there are wires sticking out and connected to the skin).

Anyway, as the weapon is charged, the user can extend the barrel and hold it in such a way it's shown in the upper right pic. However, the robotic scope might not be that very accurate (even when equipped with a powerfull microcontroller that calibrates the scope at any position) so i might switch to a different alternative for it to be more accurate. The weapon is fired either by a trigger in the handle or teh user's will (similar on how she releases those energy streams)

As the weapon is fired, there will be recoil, and to counter this, there is an energy release exhaust in the rear end of the weapon as shown in the upper right part. With this, the user won't experience the full recoil, rather it would create a shockwave behind her (similar to a real recoilless rifle or a rocket launcher). A complication for this is that it will be quite noisy and an unlucky person standing behind her will have quite an injury. On the muzzle, the energy bullet is discharged, small as it is, it''s extremely powerful as its a highly compressed energized matter.

:yawn:
Slept yet? hehe, anyway that's about how it works as for now, i might change some bits and parts soon so it's not final, mebbe relocate this to the scrap section soon.

its an energy weapon... hence loads of backblast, but no recoil. energy weapons have no recoil in stead they have the heat venting as seen behind the girl using the rifle gauntlet. other wise i would agree with you... using a ballistic sniper rifle you keep your distance, unless you wanna look like half a panda.

Say, do you by any chance accept commissions? I have some special ideas that would greatly profit from your manga/anime style. Nothing naughty, btw.

Hmm, not sure, i rarely do weapon designs though, since the manga im making doesn't need much of it, and even if i do i try to keep it simple.

Nice concept. I can see how it would be beneficial to have a weapon like that.

It's still a WIP though. a longer barrel/muzzle would prolly be better...but could limit it's portability...

That might be true, especially if you want to make the gun more powerful. You could make it an extending barrel that extends when the rifle is aimed/activated. Would that work?
Reply
:iconviperxtreme:
ViperXtreme Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2009
Well, it's power is sufficient enough imo for now, the extended barrel would actually increase it's accuracy. I could prolly extend it a bit further that it can still fit in the arm.
